Day 2

We went out to check on the bees yesterday afternoon and they were doing very well. So good in fact that they had almost drank a whole quart jar of 2:1 sugar syrup. That's alot in 24 hours! Needless to say I'll be buying a 50lb sack of sugar in the near future.

The Man is really getting into the Bees. I have to tell you all this because he has made fun of me for YEARS!!! And now the tables have turned!
I like bugs. I took an Entomology (the study of insects) class in college and fell in love. I even have my own insect collection which I still add to. So naturally keeping bees was high on my list of things to do. When we bought The Farm I knew it was only a matter of time. The Man, like I said, has made pure fun of me for years...even up to and through the bee keeping class. But the other night after we put the bees in and came back to the house he was so worried about them. he kept saying, "Should we go check on them/" or "Lets go see what they're doing." Its so funny!!! Yesterday when I got home from he work he didn't even hug me! He told me to hurry up and change so we could go check on the bees!! KARMA!!!!!!
Hopefully we'll get out to the hive today...gotta get the package out and the last 5 frames in. If not then tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes. I promise this blog won't turn into a bee blog..its just the most exciting thing right now! Ya'll have a great weekend!!


  1. Wow, they're doing great! That makes me chuckle thinking about the Man and his bee-keeping. LOL!

    If you need a trip to Costco for sugar, we're home today.

  2. The bees look great...I can't wait to meet them!!
